Potential Email Phishing Scam Targeting Bar Associations’ Members
Tuesday, December 13, 2016
State bar associations nationwide are reporting that their members have been receiving false notifications indicating that a disciplinary action has been filed against them. The emails appear to have been sent from the association’s office of bar counsel or their local bar association.
ALL correspondence from the Kentucky Bar Association’s Office of Bar Counsel (OBC) regarding the commencing of a disciplinary action will come via the U.S. Post Office. The OBC never uses email to send notice to a member of a disciplinary proceeding.
We suggest that you delete suspicious emails IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT open these emails or click any links. Doing so could result in your computer or device being exposed to a virus. We ask that our members be careful and diligent in regards to this matter.
